Lake 22 (Twenty-two) Trail

My husband, 3.5lb yorkie and I were the only ones it seemed that hiked this trail 8 months ago on the particular day we went. It was a cold, foggy morning and we enjoyed the eerie, romantic and moodiness of the day. An absolutely great hike and we will do it again on a clear day so we can witness the lake and the waterfall.

We hiked up there Saturday January 10th and it was such an awesome hike. The trail was clear all the way up the lake and then it's gets a little icy and slippery right at the lake. I uploaded some pictures of the lake. Enjoy..

Great hike. Dec 31 hike and it was 27 degrees cold...so ice all the way where typically you'd see water. Easier at the beginning, tougher towards the end especially with ice covered rocks but well worth it for the view. Can't wait to do this again in the Summer!

This hike is Very beautiful and well worth the effort to get up to the lake. Pretty cold at the top in December so bring layers and some good waterproof footwear because the trail is wet in some spots. I will deferentially be doing this hike again soon!

Beautiful winter hike. A light dusting of snow around the lake but doable in hiking shoes (snowshoes not required). Few people on the trail this time of year so you can enjoy the bird song. Trail is muddy in places but nothing you can't step around.

Nice little hike I do just about every year. It has just about all the 5 great essentials for a superb hike minus the sweeping summit view. Even has a waterfall and a bridge :-) There was no snow and the trail was clear. I prefer to hike this trail in the spring or fall when the wildflowers are out and it has a different feel. It's a bit lonely in the winter, but I like getting out in nature and hanging out by a mountain lake for a while.

One of my favourite hikes. Great views. Not too difficult. Good trail. Nice Lookout. Pilchuck is a trail I have done at least 10 times. It never gets boring. I like hiking around the Granite Falls area.......some good hiking, trail running and mountain biking.

This was a super nice trail for an easy day of hiking. We climbed up on some cliffs by the waterfalls and drank some beers as we watched the clouds come in. Perfect!

Nice and short, strait to the point. A lake. Even in November it was beautiful. Fallen trees, branches and leaves all over. It was a beautiful hike. Pack a lunch and have yourself a picnic, relax and enjoy the view. Took the dog as well. Definitely doing this again during the spring and summer.
